We did this walk backwards, starting in Agues through Feleches then heading up to the summit of Curyargayos and finally Ladines.
Difficulty rating: medium to difficult
Time: 5 hours +
I recommend long trousers and good walking shoes-you will be doing a bit of climbing through fern and gorse and there’s a fair bit scrambling up and down rocks. We saw lots of deer, a snake, a toad and there were tons of pretty wild flowers and blackberries to keep us going.
Turn left at the tumbledown bar
Head up through Agues turn right over the bridge crossing the Nozalin river and when the path splits 3 ways, go straight on and up into the forest. Continue on this path going up and up until you come to a T junction.
It’s clear that you follow the fork to the left and you continue on the path going up and round the mountain. Eventually you come to a group of tumble down stone huts. This is Feleches.
Follow the path that zigzags round the huts and up into the mountains. You come to a small clearning with a barn on your right, you will see a water trough ahead and to the left which marks the path as continuing ahead and to the left.
the water trough is near the trees. This is looking back on it.
Follow the path up- you are now going through fern and gorse. It’s easy to lose the path so you need to keep looking around. Basically it goes up and to the left.
A signpost always helps.
You continue on the path until you come to a clearing that is marked with an AS 63 post and an arrow pointing the way.
Scramble along the ridge
Now the path takes you up and down some little ridges, don’t go down into the forest. You basically scramble along the mountain ridge for a couple of kilometres .Keep going, the views are incredible.
Views of Ladines, Rioseco and Soto
You can see the whole of the Redes Park: Soto, Ladines and Rioseco are tiny clusters below you.
Now the ridge scramble takes you close to the forest on your left, to your right there’s a path and green pasture. (I don’t have further pictures because we got caught in a thunder storm!) Follow the path down to the right and into the pasture. Soon you’ll see another sign telling you that you’re on track. Follow the path down through the fields, it turns rocky and it brings you out onto a plain. The path takes you off to the left and onto a concrete path which leads to Ladines,to the comfort of the local bar for a little treat.
